Even though it is the summer, the football action has been coming thick and fast. We have seen England’s U20 side lift the World Cup in impressive style. There have have World Cup 2018 qualifiers flying around from all over the globe and there is the Confederations Cup kicking off over the weekend as well. But attention will also turn to the U21 European Championships which starts on Friday night in Poland and England’s Young Lions are taking part in the opening match.
They face up against reigning champions Sweden in the curtain-raiser for the tournament. These two met two years ago in the group stage and England came out on top in the match, as they did in the 2009 semi final clash with the Swedes, which the Young Lions won via a penalty shoot out. So they have lost just two of their previous six competitive U21 clashes with the Swedes and England will be hoping to emulate what the U20’s did at the World Cup recently. It could be a big old summer for England’s youth.
England U21 have to come out of the blocks firing though, because only the top team from each of the three groups at U21 Euro 2017 make it through to the semi finals where they will be joined by the best second-placed team from the group stage. So there are no margins for error in this one and so England U21 need a big performance on Friday. Their recent head to head success against the Swedes should give Aidy Boothroyd’s men enough confidence to go out and put a vital opening win on the board. They won’t want to be playing catch up in their group which also contains Slovakia and hosts Poland.
